HELP of Marina Alta
HELP of Marina Alta is a volunteer organisation that provides short-term support and assistance in English to people in the Marina Alta area of the northern Costa Blanca and Alicante province. It assists when there are medical or other health related needs.
They can provide advice, assistance and support to those in need, who are ill, disabled or housebound, including a range of medical and home nursing equipment for short term use.
The charity provides a help desk and interpreters at Dénia hospital and members are able to visit English speaking patients who are in hospital (in normal times). In addition, volunteers can support individual carers of family members, by providing them with some respite.
The group does not provide financial grants or legal and financial advice, but it can point those in need and their families to providers of that help. They can also guide people in need about benefits applications from UK and Spanish authorities and how to contact social services. Support offered is short term and is not a substitute for long-term social services or private care support.
HELP of Marina Alta runs an activity centre at Avenida Oeste 29 bajo, 03709, in La Xara, next to Dénia town (next door to the Tabac). Please see the website for details of this service which is also used by other groups. The group also runs a help desk in Denia’s Marina Alta Hospital. There are also help groups for Parkinsons and advice available on Diabetes.
HELP is run entirely by volunteers and is always looking for people to help in a variety of ways. If you can spare some time or have anything to offer, do get in touch with them.
HELP can also assist people who live in the Oliva/Gandia area of Valencia province.
